George Bird (Alec Guinness) is a mild-mannered salesman who is told by his doctor that he only has a very short time left to live. Determined not to waste his final days, he decides to go on one last holiday to live the rest of his life to the full.
Laughed I almost got Lampington's
- Last Holiday review by JD
Lampington's disease is clearly easily diagnosed. This part of the plot was a little quickly passed through but the rest was moving and brilliantly filmed. Cinematography of this standard is not currently popular. All of the actors are brilliant (for their time, sometime a bit theatrical) with a surprise appearance of Sid James. Recommended for all nostalgics.
